Why is it important to discover a leak early?

In the early stages the damage from a leak may be minimal. But over time more and more damage will be done and some of it may not be immediately obvious. Your insurance company may argue against repairing all of the damage caused by a leak if they feel you have not taken action quickly enough to reduce the damage!

Is leak detection covered by my insurance?

If you have what is known as Trace and access in your policy, you may be covered for our leak detection service.

However it is very important that you try and find the source of a leak quickly! See the “Why is it important to discover a leak early?” section above.
